...for a single round of games: 79,173. Beats the previous record, set in 07, by around 1k. Good news for a change.






"The problem when you play Leeds is that they are a huge 'confidence' side. If you get on top of them, they will cower and go away, but when they get in front their chests puff out and they start whooping as they make tackles. " (Jon Wilkin)

That’s a great bit of news (no surprise that hardly anyone has commented)!

So any good news should be applauded & used to try & further promote the game.

Very good news, a bit supprised really, was commenting at the game yesterday, a Leeds Bradford game would get 20k + but only 13k against Huddersfield, ok capacity reduced at moment but would be house full if we played Bradford, Cas, or even Wakey. Very poor away support from Huddersfield on a great day weatherwise, (not a dig)

I agree. Was just my poor attempt at sarcasm.

Achieved with London playing at home too.

Excellent stuff and although most of the big boys were at home on Thursday / Friday and many were derby games, with temperatures soaring, tomorrows games will be pretty well attended too.

I think T.V executives are not naive enough to realise that Hull V Hull KR, and Wigan V Saints playing on the same day bloats these figures massivley, lets not kid ourselves that there were thousands of new fans attending, or that the respective home teams will get anywhere near the figures quoted in their next fixture.

2000+ at London is laughable, they only have 900 season ticket holders, Catalan bring ziltch, so they miraculously had 1100 new fans attending.

You can manipulate figures all day long, having watched Hull City at the KCOM for years and having a fairly good head for attendance numbers, can anyone explain how there were over 5000 empty seats at the KCOM?
The full East Stand hold 5000 so you work it out? The stadium didn't appear to have 5000 empty seats, not by far.






PROUD TO BE A ROBIN!
